I really like this scrub. It's not harsh. Which is fine, because I like a gentle scrub for my face. I like the smell. Very clean and refreshing. I use in the morning and at night and so far that's been fine. Will probably go down to one time a day for the winter. I think this cleanser helps my face stay matte a little longer. Overall, good cleanser, decent price, worth a try.

Good, but not for every day.

Really nice cleanser. It's a scrub but is super gentle - you can barely feel the little beads once you start to lather it. It's has a really refreshing orange smell to it which is a plus! I use make-up wipes to remove my makeup, but this cleanser gets rid of any excess product left behind along with cleaning and gently exfoliating my skin. It also contains salicylic acid which is good for acne.

UPDATE: I stopped using this everyday because I found that my skin was becoming over exfoliated. It started to become very shiny and I developed this weird filmy layer around my eyes and forehead. It says it's a daily cleanser, but I would probably stick to 2-3 times a week.

I Used this in College...& That's Where I left It.

A great cleanser for your typical late teens & early 20s. Its going to erase the oil that comes with still figuring themselves out hormones.

But once that stuff relaxes you're going to have bigger problems and this isn't going to do that trick.

HOTTAKE: If you are between 17-20 I say try to reduce some acne. Don't over use or it will get worse. Other than that it's really not the best product out there.

the best neutrogena

This product breaks me out if I have active pimples. But when my skin is under control I enjoy scrubbing my face with it cause I like the smell and freshness from it

I'm serious. It's a bit more mentholated sinking in, but it's no better or worse than the blue jar.

I use this as my cleansing step in the Regimen. Scrubs aren't recommended, but my skin requires exfoliation to stay clear, so it was essential for me to tweak my routine. I've used this scrub pretty steadily for many years, and if I do switch, I always come back. I find it gentle enough for everyday use (using it gently is key though), non-drying, only lightly fragranced, oil-free, and using it alongside the BP on the Regimen keeps my skin smooth and clear. Very highly recommended.

I started using this product 9 months ago and only just stopped. I have dry skin and only had acne on my forehead when I started using this which it did clear a little, however it caused a lot more on one of my cheeks that still hasn't cleared up 8-9 months later!! After every use it seemed like my skin was red, inflamed and irritated. Also after research, it turns out it has chemicals to make you more susceptible to sunlight which ages your skin faster. I thought using it only at night would help this but the effects actually last a few days. It seems to be a gamble if this stuff will help you or make you worse, but even if it works there's still the issues with accelerating the aging process :/
